Yesterday I heaped lavish praise on this past week’s Fixer Upper project.
Its exterior makeover was epic.
The interiors were just as beautifully done, of course.
Let’s enjoy the new kitchen, paying close attention to the X as a design element:
Both the island + pendants above it are sporting their own X motif.
I love it!
But wait — there’s more. Look at the staircase re-do.
Once again, there’s the X motif.
Here’s another before + after look-see:
I think we can all agree that the new stairs really nailed the X motif.
Do we love it, or what?
Of course I do, as I have always been a fan of the X design.
Here are some of my favorite photos of X’s:
Hooked On Houses
Excellent, am I right?
Now please view a most adorable cottage right here in my hometown!
Need I say that I love it + want it?
The only negative, for me, is at the railings of the porch steps.
See how the distance between the posts is wider that those at the top of the steps?
The X is getting too stretched out!
And yes, that’s my only criticism of those new stairs in the Fixer Upper house —
stretched out X’s going up the stairs.
See for yourself:
See the X at the bottom of the steps? It’s cute, right?
But the X on the railings go upstairs gets stretched too wide.
My thoughts are that if the vertical posts were closer together,
the X’s would be more pleasing.
How about 3 X’s going up the stairs, instead of 2?
What are your thoughts?
